kwiry, a San Francisco-based startup, has launched their mobile/Web service at kwiry.com.
Founded in October 2006, kwiry is funded by Hummer Winblad partners.
kwiry turns text messages into reminders and results users retrieve online. kwiry partners with advertising and media companies to help them drive traffic online through their viral community platform.
Simply by sending a text message to 59479 (K-W-I-R-Y), anyone can use the service. Moreover, there’s no need to install new software, learn new technologies, or pay any additional fees.
Registered users have their kwirys (text messages) stored for them at kwiry.com. The service also integrates with other sites like Facebook (News
), iGoogle and myYahoo.
“We built kwiry to help people remember things,” Ron Feldman, CEO of kwiry says in a press release, “but it does more than just store lists. People can easily view search results for their kwirys from many different Web sites and share their favorite results with friends.”
Just one click turns kwirys into search results once people are online from sites like Yahoo, Google (News
), Wikipedia, Amazon and more.
kwiry also lets users mark their ‘favorite’ search results so the best sites stay linked to each kwiry. People can create their own community at kwiry.com with photos, profiles, and comments or integrate kwiry into their existing social networks.
kwiry partners with advertisers and media companies to provide a unique viral platform to drive offline audiences online.
